The Best Simpsons Fan Podcast

Out of all the simpsons podcasts I’ve listened to, this one’s the first and by extension the best. Also, I guess Bob and Henry are really knowledgeable or whatever.

I was wrong!

I’m here to take back a previously posted review with hat in hand and crow in mouth. I initially gave this podcast 2 stars, but after listening to more of it I think definitely deserves 5. It is easily the best podcast about the Simpsons out there, and their other podcasts that cover other series are just as good. Hope you can forgive me!

Informative but "when will they get to the fireworks factory?!"

I've been listening to this podcast from almost the time it premiered - four years? I've always found the insight Bob and Henry (& Chris?) provide interesting even if it can be way too off course. The guests are however ruining the show. It seems some guests come to do nothing BUT derail the show and ask trivial questions ("has this episode already happened?", "when did ____ happen?", etc). I've been looking forward to the show getting to the seasons past the "golden age" to see how the show evolves. But every guest comes on and mentions how bad the show is at that point, they stopped watching, and then make accusations Bob and Henry have to walk them back from. Why should I continue if I'll I'm going to hear for the next 20 seasons is how the guest doesn't like the show now? I'd prefer they just make Nina, Kat, and Dave rotating guests. Or if you're going to insist on the current format of new guests, maybe at least advise them to not trash the show the whole time. If that's what the show is going to become, then it's stupid of any fan to continue to listen.
